Cincinnati Secular Homeschool Connection

This group is for homeschooling families in the Northern Cincinnati and Southern Dayton areas such as Trenton, Middletown, Fairfield, Liberty Township, Hamilton and many other surrounding cities. This also includes Hamilton, Butler, and Franklin counties in Ohio. I am a homeschooling mom of four children. I have created this group to find others like me who are homeschooling for reasons other than religion. We can support each other, share ideas and plan meet ups for those who would like to get together. Parents of special needs children are welcome and encouraged to join.
